Thanks for the tips I will certainly try this! I was coming to the conclusion that somethign like this needed to happen but its very helpful to hear that it can be overcome using a different method and if there is crying then its for a good reason I can't stand to hear him crying cause he wants to sleep but doesnt know how.
I sympathise with the OP about not wanting to CC. I dont want to either. I much prefer to rock and slowly ease into self settling!
I too did BabyBliss patting technique at 6 months, had returned to work and was a zombie from breastfeeding feeding DD during the night to settle her. Took us 5 nights and we were a new family. Involved very minimal crying...a bit of whinging but no tears (from either of us)!
Sorry, I don't have an advice as I'm in the same boat, co-sleeping and breastfeeding to sleep.
I just saw that the book "baby bliss" was recommended a few times. What's the authors name? I searched on iBooks and two different books came out.
